You have a Mission. You have Goals. You have People.

What’s standing in your way of ensuring that everyone you work with is aligned with your Goals and Mission?

Focused Teams, or rather, the lack thereof.

More often than not we see Team Members that only have an hour or two ​per day​ of uninterrupted time. That’s not nearly enough time for them to achieve ​Flow​ - that state you reach when you’re in the zone and really getting things done.

It’s amazing what can happen when you help teams optimize how they work for focus.

Come learn what we’re learning through our work with some of the biggest/smallest/oldest/newest companies and projects around the world. The lessons we’re learning have been field-tested and revised over the last few years.

We’ll take you through practical guidance about how we’ve been helping teams jettison all of the junk that prevents them from focusing on the things that truly matter.

Breakout: Track 1 (Team Leader Training)
Learn how to optimize the daily and weekly events that Aigle teams need to focus on what matters and get things done.

Breakout: Track 2 (The Least Wrong Way of Estimating)
